I have this version

Looking at the new version, I kinda thought that the "race" version handle looked shorter...so I bought it.

This is what I got

I'm guessing the annodized AL part is exclusive to the shifter design and not interchangible?

Anyone want to buy a race handle?

Buy the whole shifter if you don't already have one, you'll love it.

I have one on the Tremec 3550 that is in my Mustang, and it is a real plus addition. The stock 3550 shifter has a long throw, and the MGW shortens it up very nicely.

I already have the MGW shifter...just the older version.

I just want to see if the handles are interchangeable

I need to get me one of these shifters when I replace my trans this winter. SVE short throw will get tossed out.

I have a Tri-Axe on mine. Never had a reason to consider changing other than all the kudos everyone has for the MGW.

I'm keeping it until I upgrade from the T5.

Well, this video answer my question.

However when you order a handle, you only get the shaft not the orange part. Need to email them.
